This Green Earth - August 25, 2015
August 5th, the EPA and its contractors working at the Gold King Mine in southeast Colorado accidentally released millions of gallons of mine waste into the Animas River above the resort town of Durango. The plume of metal and mud stretched over 100 miles and three states before slowly diluting within the San Juan River in southeastern Utah.
Joining hosts Chris Cherniak and Nell Larson in the first part of This Green Earth to discuss this event is Jonathon Thompson, writer and senior editor with High Country News. Later in the hour, they speak with folks from Recycle Utah about their upcoming Aqua Affair. The concluding guest was Daisy Fair who spoke about Copper Moose Farms.
